Que faites vous plus que les peagers,
Si vous aymez seulement voz amis?
Pource, dit Christ aux hommes mensongers,
Aimez de coeur non feinct voz ennemis:
Secourez les aux perilz où sont mis.
Car leur offrant vivre & tout bien honneste,
Embraserez aux haineux ennemis
Charbons de feu allumés sur leur teste.

PRUNAS ENIM
CONGREGABIS

For thou shalt heap coals ... (Proverbs 25:22; Romans 12:20)

lxxiii.

Hoc mirum tibi num, redamare videtur amantem?
Falleris: est alio lex capienda modo:
Dilige qui te odit: facies inimica residat
Ut rabies, & post mutuus ut sit amor:

Surely it does not seem admirable to you, to love the one that loves? You are wrong: the law is to be understood in another way: love him who hates you so that hostile fury of the face may be calmed and afterwards there may be mutual love.
